It's Episode 17 of In the Mood for Podcast, a British-based film podcast hosted by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Pete Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog. This week the return of the elder Fanning sister prompts thoughts on cancer films when we discuss the tearjerking "Now Is Good," but don't be surprised if we want it putting out of its misery. It Girl Jennifer Lawrence is back from her Hunger Games triumph with teen thriller "House At The End of the Street," while former It Boy Brad Pitt proves his muscle in adult thriller "Killing Them Softly." This week's arthouse delights come in the form of Brit flick "In The Dark Half" and the mysterious-looking "Samsara," before Oliver Stone's cock waves us a hearty hello in "Savages." All this, and some juicy Oscars and Emmys talk... because awards are Pete's favourite.
